First, But Definitely Not The Last

The other day, I found Joshua throwing a baseball at our back door. How it survived his left armed pitches, I will never know. I took away all of his balls and told him to never throw a baseball at glass again. After a good sit down and discussion, I thought that he had learned his lesson.

Back door


The very next day, Joshua found a baseball and began work on his pitching skills. Only this time...

Baseball + Glass =

A million pieces of shattered glass



Fortunately my breakables in the hutch did not get broken and at least he didn't throw the ball at the back door. Maybe one day that arm of his will do him well in baseball, but until then ALL BALLS ARE ONLY TO BE THROWN OUTSIDE!!!!

Oh no Sunny! I'm so sorry! Guess you can get onto Jason for loving baseball so much and passing that on to Joshua. I'm sure that arm will do him some good one day. :)

Oh no, your poor hutch! Maybe that showed him why its not a good idea to throw balls in the house! When he's a pitcher in the major leagues you'll be able to tell how you had to sacrifice a hutch at the beginning of his career;)

Oh dear!!! I am glad your breakables inside the hutch were okay! Will you be able to get that glass replaced? Poor Joshua.... learning the hard way that He definitely needs to listen to Mom!!

I am so sorry! I hope you will be able to get it fixed pretty easy. Thank goodness it didn't break anything in your cabinet.

Oh, wow!!! Maybe this is a good reason why my boys don't play baseball. Maybe he learned a good lesson of why we don't throw balls in the house.

Poor little fellow...he just can't help it!

Jason said...

For the record...I had nothing to do with this!

So sorry about your cabinet but I know somewhere in there you gotta be proud of that arm ;) Just kidding....not validating it or anything. Glad that nothing else was lost except the glass panel.

OH NO! I feel like my day is not far off! Tell Jason it's his fault for encouraging the love of the game..even though I see his disclaimer above :-)! At least none of your things broke.
